#3074522 Workington P Dewsbury P: travel, discussion

Posted by town4me on 19 February 2015 - 02:30 AM

They switched Carter to the other wing for the second half and still Squires scored down their right flank. On this showing from Workington we should encounter few problems, BUT (there's always one!) according to their supporters, they play expansive rugby at home; saw none of that today.

I thought Stokes favoured Batley (or perhaps their misdemeanours were seen in a different light); he sin binned Oldstrum (I think it was he) for something that was not that bad, but he failed to see the head high tackle on the Worky player which put that lad out of the game with the Batley player substituted immediately after the offence.
The attendance given in Sporting Life astounds me. It says 1200 were there; I would reckon half that at best!

In fairness to Batley, they took their chances well with Squires outstanding and scoring three tries uphill, albeit from a short distance. The first was from a kick and chase; he grabbed the ball in the air while the Worky full back wad waiting gor it to sit in his arms. The second was from his own kick and collect (it was good) and the third, he stopped close to the touch line, the Town winger held off and Squires then carried on. His fourth was in the dim and distant far Gornergat from nowhere I was standing.

who said we play expansive rugby at DP? Our pitch size means expansive RL is difficult. It's more the size for forward battles and we have assembled a big pack as batley fans have commented from sunday and two forward debutants to come in this sunday from Oz and wires.No easy games in this league and if we are to win on sunday it will be down the middle. Safe journey up.

If he has family reasons then all the best to him and his family that's his priority. on the rugby side of things he would have been leading a shambles. All the deluded rumours can begin now of who they think will be coming.

I think it's the reason there isn't much space to throw the ball around out wide at DP. same for both teams though

I heard today hes here on a season loan, his dad is a shaven die hard !!!, but someone tell me what he did today !!!! hes befo carrying a bit round the middle for a young fella, hopefully PV will get that jam off and we can develope another young Cumbrian for better things ;)

if he is on a season long loan we are desperate at HB and it must mean our aussie HB hasn't happened.i am disappointed.

I wouldnt underestimate them too much!

i don't think anyone will underestimate them as it's a Derby match. However if Town had travelled to CP and got hammered like that and we're due to play a Derby at the wreck the following week we wouldn't be saying it would still be a comfortable win.especially if most of our fans thought we were way too light in the pack and needed 3 to 4 signings sort it out and also if we were enquiring about season ticket refunds and slamming new signings and the coach already. Just saying.

They have to have a big lump of budget left after most of their big name players left so it would be no great shock to see a couple of big names in their pack. Will be interesting to see who are the local lads they promised to sign.

they don't seem to be going down the local route.they allegedly want to train 4 times a week but how many travellers will or can commit to that irrespective of money offered. Their last 2 signings are far from inspiring.
